Clearwell Caves Vessels

Leave a comment


A collection of glass fragments dated from the 17th century were found during excavations at the Clearwell Caves mining museum. Given the opportunity to work with them Gillam-Hull re-imagined their previous forms with copper wire interventions, re-framing them as complete vessels. She has highlighted the beautiful and almost holographic de-lamination of the glass by leaving the copper with it’s rainbow colored heat patina.
